Wonderwerk Cave( World Monuments Fund )
Ga-Segonyana / Kuruman, South Africa
This limestone and ironstone cave about 300 miles from Johannesburg is one of the few sites around the world with evidence of human occupation dating back nearly 2 million years. It also contains prehistoric artwork dating back 10,000 years. The cave is open to the public, and there is a small museum on the site. Despite its archaeological significance, erosion and threat of collapse threaten research here.
